Response to COVID-19

Posted on March 13th, 2020

UPDATE:

Worship videos available for Sunday Worship here.

The Way videos are availble here.

We are following CDC guildelines. We do not anticipating returning to in-person services until mid-May at the earliest.

***************************************************************************************************

Friends,

The ever evolving concerns around gatherings and social distancing, together with preventive actions by Shelby County Schools as well as other institutions, prompts further action on our part about how to proceed.

The prescriptive guidance by the CDC and public health officials is to refrain from large gatherings. After consulting with our Lay Leader, SPRC Chair, and Church Council Chair, Mimi and I agreed that in the best interest of public health and to assuage concerns and fears, we are suspending our worship services including The Way effective today until at least 3/27 for The Way and 3/29 for Sunday school and worship.

In the interim, we will use our YouTube channel for devotional/worship elements to share with our worshipping community. Stay tuned on that.

The Church office will continue to be open. We will continue to host the weekly recovery meetings for the groups who want to continue to meet, understanding that we will use our cleaning protocol for hard surfaces.

We recognize that vulnerable populations are part of the St. John’s community. Our food ministry is essential for many and will continue. For the foreseeable future, our soup kitchen ministry will consist of takeaway meals. There will be no tables or chairs in the fellowship hall to dissuade congregating. Our food pantry will continue, and we have upped our number of families to serve through the week to reflect the school closures, as we would for Summer Break.

Now more than ever is a time for St. John’s to “be the church.” We just need to do it, be it, in ways that are safest for everyone involved.

We will update you as we have more information.

Peace.
Johnny and Mimi
